easter gift set

An Easter gift set is a perfect solution if you’re unsure what kind of Easter treat you want to give to someone special in your life. Each of these boxes contains a variety of our delicious chocolates, jelly beans, and springtime favorites. And the best part of all, they come prewrapped and ready to be given away.

At Lazar’s, we like to make sure to include every holiday, so if you and your family celebrate Passover, you will be happy to know that we carry Kosher chocolates and Jelly Fruit Slices to help you celebrate. And if you want to be extra cautious when it comes to consuming our products, we also have a dried fruit and nut tray.

Sizes for the Easter gift set range from small to jumbo, but they all contain the same type of products. The size you want to give away is up to you, but if you get a jumbo size, whoever is getting it may be inclined to share some with you. But if not, you could always grab one for yourself because everyone deserves a treat on Easter. No matter what the size.

Why Chocolate on Valentine’s Day?

Valentine’s Day is that time of year when we celebrate how much we love and care for those close to us, whether they are a spouse, partner, child, or friend.

A few popular items that we give away are flowers, candies, and chocolates. But have you ever wondered why chocolate? How did this tradition start?

It all started in the 1840s when celebrating Valentine’s Day became a popular day to celebrate love by the English-speaking world. Victorians showered their loved ones with cards and gifts as a way to express their love for the holiday.

By now, Cadbury had developed a new way to enjoy chocolate. So, Richard Cadbury decided to get in on the craze by placing bite-sized chocolates into heart-shaped boxes and selling them.

Cadbury advertised the boxes as multifunctional because they were so pretty that people could use them to store trinkets and other items when all the chocolate was gone.

These boxes became popular until World War Two when Valentine’s Day celebrations were downsized due to saving sugar. Today, some families still have these Victorian- Era boxes in their possessions and are considered valuable by collectors.

In 1907, Hershey’s chocolate launched its famous “kisses,” which got its name from the sound the machine would make when producing the chocolates.

In 1923, Stover’s also started selling Valentine’s Day chocolates in heart-shaped boxes.

Today, Lazar’s carries various Valentine’s Day treats, and yes, some of these treats come in heart-shaped boxes. These boxes start at four ounces and go up to two pounds of chocolate. We also carry heart-shaped, foil-wrapped chocolates.

Does your special someone enjoy roses and chocolates? Well, you’re in luck because we have the best of both worlds, chocolate long stem mini, and long stem roses.

And if chocolate isn’t their thing, we carry Valentine’s candy such as cherry JuJu and jelly hearts.

It’s not too late to order your Valentine’s Day chocolate. For more information on how to place an order, visit our website or give us a call at 1(516)829-5785. We will answer any questions you may have. Contact Lazar’s today!

Understanding Chocolate Percentages

When shopping for chocolate, you may have noticed the different percentages on the labels, but what do these numbers mean? Well, these numbers indicate how much cocoa beans go into the chocolate. The percentage number indicates how much cocoa goes into it and how it will taste.

For example, dark chocolate bars contain anywhere from 55% to 90% cocoa, giving them a somewhat bitter, although still edible taste. Milk chocolate contains 35% cocoa, making it sweeter tasting chocolate and the most popular consumed chocolates.

Is there 100% cocoa? Well, yes. But it’s more commonly used in baking cakes and brownies where sugar is added because on it’s own, the taste is quite bitter.

At Lazar’s, our dark chocolate bars range from 60% to 80%

But don’t let the high cocoa content of dark chocolate deter you from consuming it. A high-quality dark chocolate bar or other product, such as ones you would find at Lazar’s, are actually quite tasty.

They also have added health benefits such as lowering cholesterol, blood pressure, improving brain function, antioxidants, and many more.

At Lazar’s, we carry an assortment of chocolate products ranging from milk chocolate to very dark chocolate. These include chocolate-covered nuts and candies to chocolate bars and boxes of assorted chocolates.

We also carry products for those with dietary restrictions such as nut and milk allergies, diabetes, and kosher, because we feel that everyone should be able to enjoy a sweet treat now and then.

With the holidays approaching, consider checking out our holiday catalog. Right now, we have our Christmas and Chanukah treats available for purchase. These holiday treats make for great centerpieces or to give away as a gift.
